FOXBOROUGH -- Seven Patriots were limited in Wednesday's practice, including tight end Rob Gronkowski and receiver Danny Amendola.

Another tight end, Zach Sudfeld, participated fully. He has had a hamstring injury, which caused him to miss last week's game against the Jets. If Gronkowski can't go, Sudfeld's availability would likely be useful.

Amendola isn't expected to play Sunday against the Buccaneers, and didn't look close to being ready for a game in the brief portion of practice made accessible to the media. He was running at less than full speed and not cutting sharply in receiver drills.

The others who were limited included running backs Brandon Bolden (knee) and Leon Washington (thigh), offensive linemen Dan Connolly (finger) and Will Svitek (knee), and defensive back Nate Ebner (ankle).

Two Patriots missed practice. Receiver/special teamer Matthew Slater has a wrist injury, and cornerback Marquice Cole was excused to attend the birth of his child.
